Hello she writes family!

It's an honor to be part of this community of writers - I immediately joined the "late bloomers" group as I didn't start to share my writing until recently and I'm approaching the "back 9" of my 40's.

Blogging about my cancer diagnosis has been incredibly…

Millennial Entrepreneurialism: Narcissism or Practicality?

I have never been happier professionally since I began to work for myself. I have worked for others in my life; I babysat when I was young, worked in restaurants as I was in high school and college, and worked in an office setting after graduation.
